Glenn Beck had a fascinating conversation with John Williams, founder of www.shadowstats.com and overall stat geek. This guy breaks down the numbers and shows you where the government is skewing the stats in their favor in areas like inflation. Glenn aired only a small part of the interview today but you can hear the full stat breakdown and why Williams thinks we are headed for another great depression here: FREE AUDIO. They are eliminating OIL and FOOD when they give their stats to evaluate “inflation”. This is why things really are as bad as we feel, and why the stated rate of inflation isn’t “reflecting” what is really happening – Mr. Williams even suggests a “sinister” misrepresentation starting with Alan Greenspan. You must hear this.
I’d also recommend watching the Frontline episode on “The Secret History of the Credit Card“.
